My baby has got a brand new bag You notice when she starts to drag She loves me, but she hates me too She says that I’m a lot like you. A lot like you… Hey.. Do you want me? Do you miss me? Would you kiss me? Are we lovers like no others? Or just playing under covers? When you touch me I go crazy. When you’re sleeping you look amazing. Are you coming back tomorrow? For your love I’d beg, steal or borrow. My baby has got a brand new bag You notice when she starts to drag She loves me, but she hates me too She says that I’m a lot like you. A lot like you…

Crazy Girl 03:05
Another weekend staying out all night We’re in the kitchen and what an awful fight I don’t know why I keep on doing what you say Momma says it’s just the dues I’m gonna pay for two Crazy girl like you You take me dancing then you leave me on the floor Spend all my money as you walk right out the door You got my cigarettes and all my credit cards You think it’s funny when I wake up in the yard…you do Crazy girl like you Another weekend and you throw up on my lawn I look to you but you’re gone…gone gone gone away So go on leave me now just walk right out the door It’s nothing new to me I’ve seen it all before Take my pickup truck Lord take my trailer too Poppa says it’s just the dues I’m gonna pay for two Crazy girl like you Another weekend and you throw up on my lawn I look to you but you’re gone…gone gone gone away

Last Call 03:34
What went wrong with your Rock-n-Roll? Did it wear you down? Take a toll? The neon girls and the alcohol. Out all night… your last call. Yeah she’s the prettiest girl in town, but she always runs you down, late at night when you’re not around. And she’s got the tattooed ankle, she’s got the tattooed ass, she’s always laughing, Lord I think she’s on the grass. But what went wrong with your Rock-n-Roll? Did she take your heart? Did you lose control? ‘Cause I remember those nights, with you under the lights, you tore our hearts out and you laughed with delight. With your sweat running down, cigarette butts on the ground, you were magic when you moved to the sound. Now you just hide yourself away, with nothing new to say, you leave us hanging with these whiskey clichés. And that’s the worst way to be, everyday it’s all we see, while we’re swimming ‘round in mediocrity. But I remember those nights, with you under the lights, yeah you were smiling you can’t deny you had it right. Crazy dancing all around, the chaos coming down, yeah you were magic when we moved to the sound. So what went wrong with your Rock-n-Roll? Did it tear you down? Take a toll?

Come on Annie, I’ve been thinking We should find some time I don’t know but I would say It’s not a waste of time That’s what gets me, that’s what gets me That’s what gets me down to Two Bells Road Come on Johnny, meet me halfway Down to Mehaffey Bridge We’ll go jumpin’ and we’ll go swimming I’ve got lots to give I won’t deny I want to see you in the sun Come on sister, I won’t see you When you’re lying there I don’t think so But I won’t say no I don’t really care I see it coming out tonight The sun goes down So come on Annie, meet me halfway down to Mehaffey Bridge We’ll go jumping and we’ll go swimming I’ve got lots to give I won’t deny I want to see you in the sun…

Sometimes 04:44
Is it all that you wanted, is it all that you deserve? You’re not newly broken hearted, funny how it still hurts I’d like to see you…if you come back around I’d like to see you…show yourself in town I’d like to see you….sometime…sometime Do you go back to those pastures, where you first gave it away? Do you paint your disappointment, are you gonna make it pay? I’d like to see you…if you come back around I’d like to see you…show your stuff in town I’d like to see you…sometime….sometime I don’t know what you’re thinking, I don’t know where you go It’s not my fault, it’s not my problem, but I wanted you to know I still miss you….sometimes….sometimes I’d like to see you…sometime….sometime

It’s gonna be a long cold winter Feel it on the wind tonight The leaves are on the ground down near the gutter The skies are gray, everything has died I never went out looking for your affection It’s all fun and games ‘til someone cries I must have looked like I needed some protection My clothes all dirty ragged and tired But I was on my feet I had some direction Had enough to eat, yeah I was doing fine I never went out lookin for your attention It’s all fun and games ‘till someone cries…

Forsaken 02:42
Lord please do forgive me for these sins that I’ve committed and the shit forsaken soul that I’ve become. Don’t know how it happened, took a wrong turn down near Memphis, now my liver’s boxed and I’m feeling overcome. And I can’t take confession anymore. And I can’t find my way back to your door. Lord please do forgive me for those sins that I forgotten and these ill-begotten party favor gains. Don’t know where it happened, hopped the wrong rail down near Georgia, now the train I’m on takes your name in vain. Yeah and I can’t take communion anymore. Yeah and I can’t find my way back to your door. Lord please do forgive me for I’ve coveted another, now I’m wrapped in my own blanket of disdain. Don’t know how it happened, the neighbor she came calling, now we’re lying here and we can’t clean up the stain. Yeah and mama would be so proud, and grandma’s wrapped in shrouds of shame. Yeah but mamas are always proud, and grandma’s not impressed by hollow fame. So Lord please do forgive me for these sins that I’ve committed and the shit forsaken soul that I’ve become. I never thought I’d need you. Never could believe you. Never thought I’d crawl back to your door…

I want to see my grandma’s rosary All day in hot sun with more work that’s never done And if I take her to Union Hill She could walk up and pay her bill She might come in a little lean But those eyes would still be green I want to see my grandma’s wounded knees Every day bar none, more working that’s never done And if I take her to Union Hill She could walk up and pay her bill She might come in a little lean But those eyes would still be green Yeah those eyes would still be green I want to see my grandma’s rosary…
